How to Attack a 2-3-2 Zone Defense in Flag Football

fact, it was that very question that led to me start selling my Headache Offense and Unbeatable Defense online more than a decade ago. I decided to come up with a set of plays just for this article to show how easy beating a zone defense really is.

Here is one example of how you can move the ball vs. a 2-3-2 zone in a 7man blocking league. All three of these plays attack the “bubble” underneath the Safety and between the Linebacker and Cornerback. This is a very vulnerable part of the zone defense.

Play #1

LSE – Post-corner route with the initial break at about 7 yards depth. Be sure the post part of the route aims to the opposite sideline at about 20-25 yards depth. This is important, as you’ll see in the next play.
RSE – Post route with the break at about 5-7 yards depth.
RWO – Square in route at about 5 yards depth. The ball will be thrown to the “bubble” area.
Center – After an initial block, run a 5 yard hook route above the LT.
QB – The reads are simple.

1) First look at the “bubble” and if it is open, pass to the RWO running into it.
2) If the LB is threatening the bubble, pass to the center. If the Safety is threatening  เข้าสู่ระบบเว็บตรง ufabet the bubble, pass to the RSE post at the shaded area in the diagram. Pass a bullet to him in stride.
3) If the FS moves to help cover the RSE, just pass to the LSE’s post-corner.

Now what happens if the strong side Corner follows the RWO, anticipating the in route? That brings us to the next play.

Play #2

LSE – Exactly like the previous play’s post-corner, but without the second break. Continue the post across the field until you run out of bounds.
RSE – Run a post exactly like you did in the previous play, except at about 12-15 yards break outside to the sideline at a point 2 or 3 yards underneath your break.
RWO – Run a square in like before, but before you get to the middle of the field, turn around and settle down in the “bubble”.
Center – Same as previous play.
QB – Only run this play when you notice the Corner following the RWO on the square in.
